I just uploaded the "I Drink Your Blood" & "I Eat Your Skin" double feature trailer. Its interesting that they use no footage from "I Eat Your Skin". As far as I can tell, there are two theories behind this. The first is that they thought that showing B/W footage would put audiences off. The other is that they hadn't bought "Zombies" when they cut the trailer - they had the concept and title but no second feature. I'm more inclined to think that it was the second one.

I think the reason why they didn't use any footage from "I Eat Your Skin" might have been because IEYS was a black & white movie and they figured that by 1970 everbody expected new releases to be in color. B&W releases were rare by then. Maybe they thought not letting folks know it was b&w would sell more tickets.

Nope, B&W. Made in 1964 under the name "Zombies." Sat on a shelf for 6 years, renamed by maker of "I Drink Your Blood" to "I Eat Your Skin" to make a double-bill drive-in show.

Speaking of zombies...I came across this short film on the IA and I think it's worth a peek:

Zombie's own arm vs cricket bat, which would win in a fight?

How much do I need to drink to make it appear in color?

Eat a peanut butter and sardine sandwich and wash it down with a 50/50 mixture of Mtn. Dew and Dr. Pepper and a big scoop of mint chip ice cream. That oughtta do the trick.
